Ingrid Stiehler



My intensive work in art I began with landscape photography , when I studied at the academy of administration and business in NRW (Germany).

Inspired by the different trends of the cultures of Asia, Africa and North America, I combined new impressions and traditional techniques learned in many journeys. My approach is, to learn by doing; my endeavor was always to find an individual style in this way and to create aesthetic and decorative objects, linked with a positive message - maybe you will find a criticism against people (where ever they live), who are intolerant and unfair against other creatures or our nature... - and that's intended!

My acrylic/bronze paintings are interesting and decorative parables, which will be explored and discovered by the viewer and exhibited already - to my great joy - in many international shows and biennals, since 2007.

The preferential materials for my artwork are silk, gypsum, bronze, wood, acrylic and not least silver.

About My Art:
Simone Cappa (NY Arts Magazine November/December 2008, vol 13, No 11/12 ):

Ingrid Stiehler’s alluring paintings are notable for their bright palette, reduced imagery and flat areas of seductive color. Stiehler, who is based in Germany, is clearly attracted to attitudes and situations that provoke an extreme visceral answer, she is interested in developing and capturing the potency of the paint verses the subject—which is exactly what the paintings on display do. They hold up a mirror to both the banality of urban life and solitude of glamour, giving order to the barrage of mass media images and information that confront us daily. In Stiehler’s fairyland, enchantment and disenchantment coexist. These paintings are really vanitas, made from uninflected slicks of bright glossy paint—giving them a hermetically sealed, impenetrable perfection. While Stiehler’s paintings have always emphasized their luscious surfaces and simplified forms, Modern Times and As Long As The World Goes On display a strong melancholic beauty.
Retaining the surface quality and the flat economic language, the works on
display in Play highlight a subject matter broadened
